S12. Heavy Pure Silver Cross in .999 silver, more pure than sterling.
Highly detailed Renaissance cross.
This beautiful Cross has been enhanced with dark blue enamel - 5 dots on each of three sections, to bring out the design - just enough to make this very distinctive.
Next I've used Swarovski Crystals in very special color that changes from dark sapphire blue, to red, to yellow to purple. These are expensive stones called Meridians. One size is on the arms of the cross, a larger size on the bottom and in the center of the design. See all the images as I tried to capture the changing color as the stones reflect the light.
The pattern and "look" are taken from books of Renaissance jewelry.
The Cross hangs from an 18" sterling silver chain.
As with all my works, this will arrive in a beautiful silk brocade pouch in turquoise as depicted in the photos. It should be used to keep the piece safe. In the package will be a little polishing cloth and a colorful card explaining that this is handmade, one of a kind, and the process of creating the piece.
It makes a lovely gift package.
Size is 2" tall (excluding the hanging loop) by 1.25" wide.
One photo shows the reverse of the pendant. Please note that I finish both sides of my pieces and the Phoenix is my signature.
To gauge size, one photo includes a quarter as a measure for comparison. In general, the images are a bit deceiving in that the piece looks large. However, this photo indicates just how small I work.
As with all fine jewelry, this piece should be treated delicately. It should not tarnish as it's been coated with a sealant. However, enclosed in your package will be a small jewelry polishing cloth as a gift to you.

Your Artisan piece is organic, made from materials found in nature. As such, it may change overtime, reacting to the elements and oxidizing. This is perfectly natural. However, I've added a sealant to prevent this. But if this should occur, please use the polishing cloth enclosed with your order. Gently polish, use no water and the beautiful sheen and color will return.
